Picture Day!

Well, my computer was in the hands of the Geek Squad at Best Buy last week because it was having some issues. Good news is that I have it back now, so I can blog again! Yay!

Today is picture day at school and I have been trying to plan the perfect classy outfit all weekend because our school picture goes on our teacher badges. I can't wait to have a teacher badge! I was trying to get my hair trimmed and colored before picture day, but the earliest opening they had was this Wednesday. At least my gray hairs will be freshly colored for the wedding I'm in in a couple of weeks. Did/Do you plan your outfits WAY in advance for picture days at school? I remember one year when I was in 3rd grade, I thought it was picture day at school when picture day was the following day and I was so embarrassed because I curled my hair and wore a dress and I couldn't wear the same thing two days in a row. It was a major dilemma. Ha!

Picture Day Outfit:

White Button Down from Wet Seal similar to this for $17.80.
Layered Pearl and Gold necklace from Forever 21 similar to this for $8.80.
Striped Dress from Tommy Hilfiger Outlet similar to this for $27.99.
Braided Belt from TJ Maxx similar to this for $8.48.
Braided Sandals from TJ Maxx similar to these for $15.00.

 This weekend, one of my absolute favorite bloggers and great friend had a birthday and she got engaged to the man of her dreams!! I'm so beyond happy for Renee!!! Check out how her man popped the question, her gorgeous ring, and her beautiful birthday outfit details over at her blog .Miss. Renaaye.!! 


  1. This is the perfect picture day outfit! I always used to plan my outfits like weeks in advance, ha ha!

  2. You made a great choice for picture day! The collar and necklace add some extra interest around your neck, since that's all that will really show in your picture anyway!

  4. Such a great dress, Amy! You look super cute :)

  5. I love this dress! It looks perfect with the accessories you chose.

  6. You inspire me to cut and color my hair. I just might do it very soon. I get so frustrated sometimes because it's so long and boring (haha that's me anyways). The collar and stripes on your outfit is perfect for picture since it is so preppy and teacher material ;) I need a dress like this in my life! Thank you so much for the shout out and the balloons! love the polka dots! cuteness! I'm already thinking wedding plans and venue options lol Jason thinks i'm silly for already talking about wedding plans (it's just so exciting!!) and you're going to another wedding? Everyone is getting married! lol Like we said, you're gonna be next! Nice new layout by the way. When I came to your blog I thought "Something looks different.." then I realized you have a completely different wallpaper. Looks perfect! xoxo

    1. I always wanted my hair to be long for my wedding, whenever that would be. It took me forever to grow out my hair too!! Someone told me last year that because my hair is so thick and long they wouldn't be able to do much with my hair when I would get it done. I chopped it off and I absolutely love it! You would die at how short of a time it would take to do your hair if you cut it!! I did feel the same about my long hair..pretty boring. You will look beautiful no matter what. I just get bored and have to try something different every once in awhile. Thanks so much and I'm so glad you liked your shout out :) I would totally be planning the wedding already if I was you too!!!! Haha! Yes, I'm in this wedding actually. I told you the weddings are never ending. Ha! I'm glad you like the new layout. I was sad because the background doesn't show up on my phone when I pull up my blog...Oh well. Love xoxo :)

  7. This outfit is absolutely perfect for picture day. Always planned outfits for weeks before the big day!

  8. That outfit is to die for!! You look amazing Ame!!

  9. What a Gorgeous, Preppy yet Chic Dress by Tommy Hilfiger - I have always loved his style. You look great for picture day. You styled this so well. A Cognac Belt does wonders for clothes. Great match with the Sandals, too.

    Also Congratulations to your friend. I will check out her blog, for sure. =)
